|Additional Information:||This paper examines the results of experimental exposure to idealised female bodies in the media in order to explore the evidence for exposure to ultra-thin models leading to increased body dissatisfaction amongst women. Women demonstrated higher body-focused anxiety when asked to focus on self-evaluation than when focussing on self-improvement.|
